en Limba Engleză Paperback
Just One Scent, The Rest is God is Volume 4 of The Poems of Award-Winning Poet and Novelist Piero Rivolta. In the tradition of metaphysical poets, Piero gathers concrete yet evocative impressions - images based on the sea and sailing, mountains and meadows, music and scents - to ask questions about the purpose of life and what it means to be human. Prose poems alternate with lyrical verse to cover a range of subjects, including work, spirituality, romantic relationships and love, from a variety of perspectives. Analyzing feelings and desire, he offers sly and profound musings to the dilemmas we all face in the quiet, reflective moments of our lives. Above all he affirms the beauty and joy of existence we can all experience on our earthly journey, if we take the time to bypass excessive rationality and trust our intuition and sensory perceptions. With the original Italian poems alongside the English translations, readers have the opportunity to experience the lyrics in both languages. PRAISE FOR THE POETRY OF PIERO RIVOLTA: "Piero Rivolta's poetry is a mix of delicate sounds plucking the strings of memory. It celebrates both melancholy and passion. He is what might be called a universal romantic, someone for whom the meaning of an object or scene persists without binding him to a solitary history; but it is his talent to evoke the power of memory that gives his poetry a flavor beyond the mere stirring of words. Though his lines are short, they suggest lasting sentences of thought, ending in a "cry of happiness" for things endured." --- Martin Tucker, Author of "While There is Time: Penultimate Poems" About "Just One Scent, the Rest is God" "The lyrics caress the sublime and reach the height of the ethereal. They lift your thoughts and give them a certain freedom. Nietzsche wrote about altitudes in the soul from which a view out causes even tragedy to not have a tragic effect. This book is an illuminating example of that." --- Nicola Vacca, "Secolo d'Italia"
